Gloria Allred Wants to Rescue the Octuplets!

Outspoken attorney Gloria Allred has announced HER plan to "provide for the medical and emotional needs" of Nadya Suleman's 14 children.

Allred and the charity Angels in Waiting, founded by a local LA nurse at Kaiser, say they want to provide 24/7 medical care, physical therapy, occupational therapy and a home for the octomom and her brood of 14. They say their plan will provide for the medical needs of the newborns without "one dime from the taxpayers."

At a press conference today, the charity's founder Linda Conforti said "This is something where she can still be a mom. We're not trying to rip these children away. We're trying to give her a support system."

Allred says volunteer nurses and medical personnel would care for the babies morning, noon and night in eight-hour shifts. Conforti said it would take 14 trained professionals to provide the proper care for the tiny babies, while also helping out mom Nadya with her other six children, including those with special needs.

The offer from Angels in Waiting would keep the family together without use of taxpayer funds, Allred said. It would require, however, donations from the public.

Do you think this is a good idea?

The way I see it is the all of a sudden everyone else, here, in the foundation, and all over the World are better parents than this woman. She doesn’t want the help…might have to do with the fact that the help is coming attached with a whole lot of judgement and criticism. I don’t doubt Nadya needs help, but when you approach anyone with an attitude that you are going to “fix them” it’s not surprising they would reject you. A more humbling approach in offering the help might have work best. If you can’t imagine it, then think about an instant when your mother in law or another elderly woman came in and told you you were doing it wrong and judging you as a mother, just like everyone else here is doing, you wouldn’t been pissed too and if not asked her to leave, certainly be on top of your husband to ask her to. Again, the woman needs help, but with all these selfrighteous we’re better than you attitudes so heavily displayed BY EVERYONE it’s no doubt she is not getting the help she really needs. Good grief!

This is a mess! Yes, Nadya needs help with the children & household chores,especially with the number of children. Nadya also needs to be heard and has a right to her intuitive feelings about who is handling her children. This is overwhelming for her-these people are strangers-coming into her home with different DNA, perfumes, ideas, feelings about Nadya etc. Nadya has not been given credit or respect about her intuitive mothering skills- It has come down to a control issue. I can understand that it takes time to trust people that are flocking into your life even if it is absolutely necessary. A Mama bear comes out and when you really look at the situation Nadya did not even have time to heal from the difficult pregnancy and postpartum. She is under an unimaginable amount of stress which does not mean that her children should be taken away. And for the tax payers picking up the tab for her children, we need to be realistic, for years & years woman have been having children and having welfare pay the way. Many of whom should have had their children placed in better enviornments. I think people should stop threatening to take her children away,allow her to let her guard down and start to trust the people that are offering help, give her some respect. I think she will be much eassier to work with then. She is creative and resourceful,but will still need alot of financial help.
Bottom line is -Nadya needs some TLC for herself(if that is possible now) and to be offered some life coaching etc. Support her, do not compund the stress that she is under. People who feel like they have to continue to defend themselves do not have the proper energy to make the right decisions.

Janet, I did check out the website and was very impressed with the work the angelsinwaiting do for special kids. But I diagree with donating money to help someone who could not financially support 6 children and chose to have 8 more although “she say” that she planned to have only one. Still to me that is irresponsible to say to the least. Now she has turned down the “free” help and chose to pay for her own nannies. Do you really think someone who can’t afford to care for her 6 children should buy $1,000 in make-up!!!

It’s a good idea to help her. The mother has problems, but the kids shouldn’t have to suffer because of it. This is EVERYONE’S problem. Why was she allowed to be implanted with so many embryos? Unmarried, unemployed and mother of 6. People, please don’t punish the children for the mistakes of their mother.

How much money would Allred make being the adoption attorney for 8 babies? I would like to know if Allred has a plant to adopt out those kids and make money from it? Scary! Nadya should file a restraining order against Allred!

From the Angels-in-Waiting website:

Our mission is to move medically fragile foster care infants and young children into private residences under the care of Registered and Licensed Vocational nurses as their foster parents.

Gloria Allred needs to retires and go watch her own grandchildren.. she is the disgusting one in this whole story… she says she is worried about the babies, yet she herself had an abortion..and looking at her daughter lisa bloom guess you can understand they say god never gives us more than we can deal with, and most of you with your ugly hateful destroy the family attitudes are the ones with the real mental problems.. look at the angels website and click on links and what do you see? a page of adoption information… was this your big plan girls? and then Media, do you really believe all you read, most if it is half truths.. Nadya made a mistake, but haven’t we all? I have made many myself..Glad I am back in Canada, I asked my kids who are in the states and pay taxes if this is hurting them and they all replied NO…sorry you all have so much anger and tiny babies and want to destroy this. That is what is sick to me. and have a good day.

if you damn people would read what you are writing, you would cry, you are saying the stupidest things, you are as insane as that stupid mom, you say no one is perfect, we all make mistakes, that was no misstake, she had those babies to make money, she said so herself, she thought she was going to be rich, she never thought for one minute,about those babies, she was only thinking of herself, Hey no one is saying Gloria doesn’t have a big mouth, & she loves to get news coverage, but shes right, she is thinking of those babies, they should be taken away from her, how can she give all those babies love, when she only had them for one reason, many familes have had 15 & more babies, and gave them all love because they were wanted, these poor babies, were made to make a selfish, no heart women rich, and it didn’t work, so now shes begging for help, do you know how many food stamps she is getting?? and welfare pays about $303,00 dollars per child, which is not a lot for all those kids, up its a lot for her, when she was first getting all that money, and a house and new car, what did she do, spent something like $3,000 on makeup, and what good did it do her, she is still as ugly in side as she is on the out side, those beautiful babies didn’t need makeup. There are so many loving couples that can’t have babies out here that would love and care for these unforturnate babies, and they would have a chance in life, you all keep saying, don’t take it out on the babies, lets give them what they need, Well YES let’s give them what they need, they neeed to be taken away from that money hungry thing, and given a mommy that will love them and give them a chance in life, give them a home, give them two parents, that want and need them, and most of all would Love them for who they are, not for what the baby can give them or make them, they need happiness, they need a childhood, they need LOVE, LOVE, LOVE,Do you really think, they can get that from a women that only wanted them so she could get rich?? and who is now broke, because her plan didn’t work, and who will be going to the Media, every 6 months or so, begging for money, in one way or another, you church going people, What do you think Jesus would do?? Really, do you think,he would say lets keep giving her money, so she can buy makeup, and party, or do you think he would pick up that beautiful baby, and give it to a loving couple that would give it a home and Love, that couldn’t have babies, think about it, you say this about the babies,so let’s do them right, YES, let’s do them right, and take them from a cold cold home and heart, and give them the warmth that they need.

I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.
